The theme from "No Excuses Art Journaling" for November is "Dreams".
"So they found a cozy place under the trees where they slept well until the morning; and Dorothy dreamed of The Emerald City, and of the good wizard OZ."
A fun way to add in some text or poetry.
And here, I got to write on some handmade paper that we made in class.
And a little bit about my days...
And November is half gone...
"O Wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are drivers, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeting..."
Percy Bysshe Shelley
(Not finished with the "fleeting" part yet.)
And below Bernie has used some wonderful papers she made at our monoprinting session.
Sandy has lots of ideas for finishing this piece...

i am going to show my journaling class this idea for making a fun and meaningful page for their journals. This one, first using masking tape to mask out parts to save for writing, I then covered the page with stamps that went with the poem I wrote.
Or like this one was done with a doodling background.
Or a little drawing...
Makes a nice journal page!

The bewitching month is coming to an end...
Tomorrow is our "art journaling" get-together at The Center, so hoping to finish most of my pages.
A beautiful month along with some mixed emotions.
Highlighting Henri and his "Baby". Baby goes with us where ever we are in the house.
The trees peaked!

And oh...that Jupiter and Venus frightened me one early morning, like two glowing eyes.
Painting class and I forgot and used a fountain pen to draw the line drawing first and it wasn't waterproof...but it was fun!
not done, but trying again with the pen I should have used.
